This is the best thing

Who says that Republicans are the only nuttos on the Hill? For some Democratic lunacy, look no further than the wackadoo e-mail exchange between a lobbyist type and Rep. Jim McDermott’s (D-WA) office manager ELIZABETH Becton:

An executive assistant at McBee Strategic recently learned this the hard way. A few weeks ago, the assistant e-mailed Becton seeking a meeting with McDermott and a client, JPMorgan Chase. Days later, the assistant checked back in and unfortunately began the e-mail with “Hi Liz.”

Becton curtly replied, “Who is Liz?”

When the assistant wrote back with an apology, Becton turned up the heat. “I do not go by Liz. Where did you get your information?” she asked.

The back-and-forth went on for 19 e-mails, with the assistant apologizing six times if she had “offended” Becton, while Becton lectured about name-calling.

Read the whole exchange. It’s simultaneously epic and disturbing. But seriously, if anyone ever calls me “Joey,” I will set them on fire.
